Liam, Olivia are still the most popular US baby names; Mateo makes debut on the list

The Social Security Administration recently released its annual list of the most popular baby names in the United States, and it comes as no surprise that Liam and Olivia once again topped the list for boys and girls, respectively. However, there was one notable newcomer that made its debut on the list this year – Mateo.

Liam has been a favorite among parents for several years now, and it shows no signs of slowing down. The name has a strong, masculine sound to it and has been steadily climbing the ranks since the early 2000s. Olivia, on the other hand, has a timeless and elegant feel to it, making it a popular choice for parents looking for a classic name for their daughter.

While Liam and Olivia may have maintained their positions at the top of the list, Mateo has certainly made a splash with its debut this year. The name has a Spanish origin and means “gift of God,” giving it a special and meaningful touch. Mateo’s rise in popularity could be attributed to the growing trend of parents choosing more unique and culturally diverse names for their children.

Other names that made the top 10 list for boys include Noah, Oliver, William, Elijah, James, Benjamin, Lucas, Mason, and Ethan. For girls, the top 10 list also included Emma, Ava, Isabella, Sophia, Mia, Amelia, Harper, Evelyn, and Abigail.

It’s clear that parents are continuing to seek out names that are both meaningful and unique for their children. Whether they choose a traditional favorite like Liam or Olivia, or opt for a newer addition like Mateo, the most important thing is that the name holds significance for the family and will be cherished for years to come.
